Ellington At Newport

LP (Item 47849) Columbia, 1956 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

One of the first albums to ever issue recordings made at the Newport Jazz Festival – quite a big hit, and the beginning of a real trend in jazz! The set's also some great work by Duke – free to perform in a setting that's not bound by some of the time restrictions of earlier years, which lets him offer up three long tracks with a great deal of sophistication over previous recordings. Titles include "Jeep's Blues", "Diminuendo & Crescendo In Blue", and "Newport Jazz Festival Suite". (70s pressing. Cover has a small spot of clear tape.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
